Jane worked hard, which resulted in success.
The author used these numbers to emphasize how important it is for people to care about animals and keep them safe, for they will be perished from Earth for good if they don't.
Taking extreme measures to learn more about chimpanzees, Jane researched and asked people around the world how to be most successful.
Since Jane wanted to have photos and videos of the chimpanzees living naturally, she set up camera traps. She heard about this technique through a man who has taken amazing photos of animals, Michael Nichols, and inherited the method.
